. >>> this evening as you might imagine, the obama administration is closely monitoring the situation in egypt. volatility there could have an effect on the entire region. nbc's mike viqueira is at the white house tonight. mike, what are you hearing from there? >> reporter: good evening to you, kate. just three days ago officials here reacted with positive emotions between morsi. and the role he brokered between the cease-fire in israel and hamas. some saw and some still see a way to leverage morsi's influence with hamas into jump-starting a middle east peace process that was all but dead. morsi's move to extend authoritarian rule by undercutting the courts complicated matters for the u.s. which still sends roughly $1 billion in aid each year to egypt. in the wake of the power grab u.s. officials issued a cautious statement of concern and a call for calm and there is a lot at stake for morsi and his muslim brotherhood as well, there's billions of dollars in imf funds, most important to the u.s. is continued stability in egypt, that peace treaty some three decades old between israel and egypt,
directed toward the obama administration is either racist or sexist. is that the new media mean? >> and rich wilson has no other way to look at it. that settles that. look, it's clear that for time magazine they said it's ace politics for the democrats, if the obama administration nominates here and see her support there and the tact that they'll take at sort of a mass political level. at the elite level. i think the administration is doing a pretty good job of saying, well, actually the talking points were massaged by james clapper and by the justice department and a lot of fingerprints there and david petraeus came along and said there are reasons why they took out the al-qaeda stuff from the talking points that rice delivered on the air and i think that argument among the elites is kind of prevailing and i think that it means that if the president does appoint-- i think the confirmation goes quickly. >> not everybody agrees though. maure maureen dowd rights when a gang shows up with rpg's in a place of hot bed sympathizer and extremist training camps. >> it's not over a movie
for the obama administration in regards to the recent krans formation in the middle east. you see it in the fascinating relationship between president obama and mohammed morsi. two mag ma tist pragmatists trya way to mediate this. you see it in the backdrop of surprising riots in jordan which will cause increasing problems, you have that changing environment which you know far more about. but the arab street needs something different. these governments now need to be more responsive to their people so that is an opening for a different relationship. and the president, no american president is going to criticize israel's launching of this war. but this is an opening for a relationship with egypt, with turkey, to implement a cease-fire that will monitor arms smuggling into gaza. that will monitor israel's relationship. overarching all of it, such a painful issue to discuss. overarching -- all of it is a history. going back at least to '67. of the united states' role, maybe, the united states' role as the enabler. as the political diplomatic economic military enabler of an israeli po
prompted the obama administration say, well, republicans don't want t protect us. how are you going to answer the predictable criticism that you're not looking out for folks, you are looking out for business interests? >> well, we are. we are saying in health emergency, of course. any sensible policymaker would say you have to be able to address those. but right now, the pendulum has swung so far that it's very difficult to even conceive starting up your business. and we want that to occur again. much less allowing for those who are operating businesses to keep the lights on and grow. you know, you look at the last three years. weave seen a 23% decline in the number of business startups. in america, we are a starter country and we want to see it happen again. neil: he was ronald reagan's top money guy. why he says capitalism is in trouble these days and it's the governments fault. by the way, republicans as well. we have david stockm acts. and suzanne somers on lala land going gaga over president obama. but next, ralph nader has had enough. he says that both parties in washington ar
us figure out. >> picking up on what heather is saying it poses a test for the obama administration and the trons formation in the middle east. you see it in the fascinating relationship between president obama and morsi. two pragmatists trying to find a way to mediate this immediate conflict. you see it against the backdrop of an islamist backdrop of turkey and the riots in jordan that will cause increasing problems. you have that changing environment which you know more about. the arabs need something different. the governments need to be more responsive to their people. it's an opening for a different relationship. no american president is going to criticize, i would argue, israel's launching of this war. it is an opening for our relationship with egypt, turkey, to implement a cease-fire to monitor gaza and israel's relationship, but overarching all of it, it's a painful issue to discuss. anything we say on this show is going to be criticized. >> you think? >> i think. it's a history. going back to at least '67, the united states role as the enabler, as the political diplomatic e
regarding egypt. >> reporter: so far the obama administration is not calling out mohamed morsi directly. president obama spoke to mohamed morsi on wednesday to thank him for his personal leadership and handling the cease-fire and days later the state department said in a statement, the current constitutional vacuum in egypt can only be resolved by the adoption of a constitution that includes checks and balances and respects fundamental freedoms and individual rights and the rule of law, consistent with egypt's international commitment. it goes on to say, quote, we call for all egyptians to resolve their differences over these important issues, piece fully, and, through democratic dialogue. but, no mention, harris, of mohamed morsi by name. >> harris: molly henneberg, thanks, molly. we move on to hollywood and the world. actor larry hagman was so good at being bad. he has passed away, and people are laying flowers at his star at the hollywood walk of fame. he died yesterday in dallas, again working as the character that maids him famous the world over, best known for his role as is the s
asked about u.s. pressure but also the u.s. playing a greater role. if the obama administration says let's let them settle it themself but they said we'll play a more aggressive role. that's the challenge for the obama administration in the second term where as in the first term they wanted a light footprint. >> there's benghazi. the president, one aspect -- we talked about the investigation. the president is expected to announce a number of top appointments, including cabinet positions in the coming days, conceivably some as soon as this week and one of the questions is, and you see the two of them there, do you think he will take on this fight and name susan rice to be -- secretary of state and do you think the senate will confirm him. >> president obama has confided in me on his secretary of state. i rather think he'll appoint susan rice. i'm not a fab of -- fan of hers but i think she'll be confirmed. john kerry might be a worse secretary of state so maybe one goes ahead and lets him have the secretary of state of wants. other maybe one votes against it as senators say she wasn't for
the new egyptian pharaoh. he's concerned and says the obama administration, particularly president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton have to be much tougher than they've been. they've been almost silent so far, and come out strongly this week in condemning morsi's power grab and in effect threaten them with u.s. military aid, economic aid. a debt forgiveness deal. so there's a lot of leverage and we have to start using it. >> he's also as many others are keeping a close eye on the benghazi investigation. he would in favor of a consolidated investigation into what happened. >> what he basically says is you have senate intelligence and homeland security and senate armed services and duplication of those on the house side. he said what we need a one super investigation, one super committee, and he and lindsey graham compared it to a watergate style committee. we had the top republican on senate intelligence, and they said we don't need that, we can do it with the standing economist. i'm not sure 0 there's a critical mass from democrats ane the creation of a special committee. i t
that people within the obama administration as well as the campaign were legitimately fearful of huntsman early on. the fact that jon huntsman wasn't able to get a word in edgewise in talking about foreign policy though he was the only primary candidate that had any foreign policy experience told you how misguided the republican party was. now they're able to look back and hopefully have jon huntsman or someone like him be part of the conversation four years from now because i do like jon huntsman a lot. >> thank you both for joining me. we'll see what happens. less than four years away till the next presidential election. thank you both for joining us. >>> 'tis the season is travel. we'll show you ho you the nation's airports and roadways are faring today and what it may mean for the hustle and bustle closer to christmas. >>> i'm dr. sanjay gupta. this week on "the next list" meet max little, a math wiz and innovator with a surprising goal. >> my name's max little. i'm aiming to screen the population for parkinson's disease. >> max little has a bold idea. what if doctors could detect par
. that permission was revoked by the obama administration even that was granted by the bush administration previously. everybody wants to get sources of energy in their states for not only to be able to get the jobs of getting it out, but attract criminal and manufacturing companies with low prices. so this is the choice we will have before us and to meet sees clearly the the way to go. i'd like to thank all of you for listening and i'd be very happy to take any questions. [applause] >> thanks, dana. if i could just start off with one question. among the natural gas reserves are natural gas reserves in the state, upstate new york. if by some fluke you had governor cuomo regarding potential for hater fracturing in the decision he is facing, what might you say to him? >> i would certainly say to look at the example of pennsylvania, which has created many, many jobs and is doing well and that job and they have an experienced environmental problems. it seems obvious that haida refracting is the way to go and governor cuomo is free to set whatever regulations he wants around that to ensure the

government in egypt. this all presenting a serious challenge for both the united states, and the obama administration. and, new obstacles in creating a genuine israeli-palestinian peace process. we'll take all of that up here tonight, with admiral james lyons, retired commander of the u.s. pacific fleet and also, president obama wants more in the $1.5 trillion in tax hikes, but he has no plan -- or announced cuts in spending, why those tax hikes don't add up to anything meaningful and we'll talk with the ceo of cke restaurants, andy puzder and says, tax rates will stifle economic growth and our favorite doctors are here, to psychoanalyze the scandal that brought down the head of the cia. we are delighted to be joined, now, by the admiral james lyons, retired commander of the u.s. pacific fleet. it is always good to have you with us. thanks for being here. >> nice to be back with you, lou. >> lou: let's turn, to first, the talking pois. which, it seems that no one after general petraeus made it clear there had been changes in those talking points, the testimony before congress s been su
realistic do you think it is that the obama administration will find education reform in the next four years? guest: we have to we authorize the elementary and secondary school at, which was known during the bush era as no child left behind. that act was about getting resources to the case that needed it most. when johnson created it in the first 10 or 20 years, we saw more equity in public schools and a greater increase in school achievement and we had in the no child left behind era. we need to have fixed but not close cutest schools so that we stabilize communities and we have schools -- facts but not close community schools -- fix but not close community schools. we need to teach more and test less. when you have places in rochester new york -- rochester, new york where they spent $20,000 for 4000 kids, that is too much testing. we need to teach kids to think critically, work together in groups and apply knowledge. host: kurt is in wisconsin on our independent line. caller: i have a little bit of a statement. in wisconsin, 89 cents out of every dollar that goes to education goes to teach
is that the obama administration did an excellent job of supporting israel all through this. made israel feel moderate and the arabs feel realistic. the second piece of good news is that egypt, even under the muslim brotherhood, has an interest in having stability. that's very important. the bad news is the islamists are in control. in the palestinian areas with hamas and certainly in control in egypt. and there's going to be no peace as long as they are there in control, and u.s. policy has got to be a long, gradual process of trying to build up the non-islamists in the arab world, including in iran, across the region. >> that frames it. we'll hear more from you in the roundtable. >>> now let me turn to carl levin, chairman of course of the armed services committee in the senate. senator, to egypt. how concerned are you? is morsi a partner of the united states, or a problem? >> yes. >> he's both? >> some of both, yeah. but even though there's great concern, i think we have to be very cautious. we don't obviously want to see a democratically elected autocrat take the place of an undemocratica
it could throw the country back into a recession if congress and the obama administration just can't make a deal. for many americans, the idea of a fiscal cliff is a hard one to wrap their brain around, but my next guest says the brain may be exactly what is needed get washington out of this whole mess. he is david rock, co-founder and author of "your brain at work." good morning. >> good morning to you, radi, good to be here with you. >> i have a lot to get through with you, but you say that our brains are inherently wired to categorize other people in one of two ways. in groups and out groups. can you explain what that means? >> absolutely. it's an inle function, and we see it in many other animals, including mammals as well. it's not just an american thing or western thing. it's very much a part of who we are, to decide if everyone we're speaking to is on our team or on another team. millions of years we lived in quite small communities so, we tend to only have a small number of people in our in group, and everyone else is kind of dangerous and potentially not to be trusted. it's very
in another article about the disagreement between the obama administration about what was happening in the first term. now that the president has dealt with underwater homeowners deal with refinancing. >> the one big disagreement is about housing and whether he adequat adequated addressed the underwater mortgages. answer a small percentage of people who have needed help have gotten it. we're four years out of the crisis and the housing market is starting to recover. >> how are we prepared for anything that the president may want to tackle in the next term? how much have we rebounded? >> the economy is definitely rebounding. you can say that with confidence things are better. longer term there is great structural questions. people's income is not increasing. if the middle class income is not going up, you don't feel it getting better. we haven't resolved questions about whether we'll have an educated workforce for the future. >> okay. zachary, thank you so much going in. we appreciate that. >> thank you. >>> fresh inside to the filming of the new movie "lincoln" after the break. ♪
decade i see the debt run up under the bush administration is a comparable amount under the obama administration. this seems to me to be a legacy of an extraordinary amount of. [inaudible] and yet we have a lot of economic problems and now our sovereign debt is roughly around gdp and this is the point in which at least in europe, investors have begun questioning it so i am curious in what way future funding would be posed as a solution to problems that the past was not and how can it be financed? >> sorry, i don't buy the premise first of all. [applause] look, we had a stimulus bill, which was about $800 billion. that is a very small part of the debt we have and none of the results of an economic stimulus so where's this coming from? the rest of it is, we have a large amount of debt or a large amount of -- we ran a deficit even during the good years which people like myself don't think was a good idea. why? because we first wanted to give tax cuts to langsam individuals and have a couple of unfunded wars. that has nothing to do is pump grinding and then we had a collapse of revenu
administration, a roughly comparable amount under the obama administration. this 10 dribble seems seems to a leg say leg say -- and -- this is the point at which, at least in europe, investors have begun to question the capacity of the country to repay the debt. so i'm curious in what way future funding would be -- would be posted as a solution to problems that the pacifism past -- past pump fining was not and how can it be financed. >> i don't buy the premise, first of all. look, we had a stimulus bill which was about 800 billion. that a very small part of the debt we have. none of it was a result of the economic stimulus. so where is this coming from? the rest of it is we have large amount of debt that was -- a large opt -- we ran deficits even during good years, which even people like myself don't think is a good idea. why? because george bush wanted to give tax cuts to high income individuals and have a couple of unfunded wars. that has nothing to do with pump priming. the enwe had a collapse of revenue that took place after 2007, which is the result of a severe downturn and financial crisis
. >> that is right. to their credit the obama administration in the days up to the election were trying to codify the rules and regulations for making those difficult decisions. however, we are alonging at the possibility of massive defense cuts. we have new personnel, as you suggested, coming in potentially to state, defense, and c.i.a., and we have our whole national security apparatus being overhauled at a time when we are in great peril as reporting from the middle east, particularly gaza strip and israel suggests. >>gregg: president obama, it can be said, has a checkered record on national security. yes, as doug points out, he escalated the drone attacks but, of course, he ignored advance warnings of a terrorist attack in benghazi, ignored the pleas for help, how do you reconcile or explain that unless this is just a conflicted and unsure president? >>guest: well, it is fairly schizophrenic. if you just look at the president's approach on terrorists, right from the beginning of the administration, it is almost like he wanted to bend over backwards to respect the rights of terrorists who were

[applause] >> well thank you mayor lee and let me just say as the federal transit administrator it's great to be in a federal transit city. as many people know a rail connection was promised to the people of union square and chinatown going on two decades. they made that promise because this quarter is the most densely populated quarter in the entire western united states that doesn't have an adequate rail connection and that promise was made because we have the opportunity here to cut the commute for tens of thousands of people everyday in half by this investment. the vast majority of the people don't own
of cost, aren't they? >> yes, when you look at the bush and clinton administrations averageded same number of rules, about 45. obama's first two years, that surged to about 66, 63 in that range. and now, we're starting-- then it fell in the second two years in the leadup to the election and this is because the regulators slowed down, it's because they delayed everything until election day, now, we're about to get-- they're about to make up for last time. >> paul: mary, what do you think are the big rules you're following? >> think about energy, particularly epa. they're bringing out billion dollar rules and something we haven't seen before. and it's going to really affect almost every part of our economy, because energy goes into the production, pretty much everything. you're talking about ozone air quality standards and carbon standards and greenhouse gas emissions and maybe fracking on federal land, fracking be the high drawlic fracturing technique that leads to oil and gas production. that's regulated by the state. are you saying that the fed wants to get in on the act and preempt the s
rates, and the free flow of capital with open investment policies. i give credit to the obama administration. have been a very good on and investing. he was the first to put out and open investment statement in 40 years. why? foreign direct investment create jobs that are disproportionately export-oriented manufacturing- oriented, and 50% unlike the to be unionized. we need to approach trade in the second obama term with the same degree of confidence, to the point michael made. i think the world is ready to engage with us. angela merkel proposed this after a speech in basel. out in asia, the chinese are now part of negotiations and they're following it very closely. we need to succeed in confidence. >> he mentioned china, thank goodness. you cannot have a dispassionate without talking about china. larry gorda to do is mitt romney winds and on monday one calls china a currency -- what are you going to do low-cost if brett romney on that date one calls them a currency manipulator? bill would send these notes out say we are a bigger china basher than romney. it was a real issue d
clinton's shoes. i don't think there's anyone in the current administration who can match her. i think what barack obama is doing is trying to find somebody who matches his philosophy and that right now is susan rise. >> and there's no chance that hillary clinton will stay on, right? she need as break. >> she need as break. there's something that might be looming four years down the road but we certainly know right now she's planning on leaving the white house. >> let me ask you about illinois congressman jesse jackson announcing his early retirement. there's been a whole lot of talk about republican soul searching. is this a chance for the party to pick up a seat in the minority district? >> i definitely think so. look, whenever you have a congressman leave because of a scandal, you saw it in new york. i think the democratic party has really taken a hit. there are a lot of people who were unhappy with jesse jackson's tenure even before his truss. >> jaz about johnson, night to see you this morning. you too. >> how old is the big blue planet we're all living on? the one and only bill n
is wrong with u.s. labor laws. little has changed for labor under the obama presidential administration. in fact, at a federal level, few have even commented on recent labor organizing against walmart. while on a local level, whether it be boycotting or purposefully spending your money at a retailer, shopping at walmart is aligned with certain political statements. yet, the majority tends to have few choices about the matter. back with me at the table is the panel. dan, let me ask a little about this. it does feel to me like a couple of retailers the choice to shop there or not shop there. a political statement. grover norquist is tweeting, avenge twinkie. shop at walmart today. >> now if you're a walmart shopper, you're somehow pro -- how does this happen? >> you know, walmart workers taking the stand has certainly brought an amazing debate. that debate includes tweets like that. the thing that's been much more exciting is a larger debate that's happening. walmart is the largest employer in the country. the debate that's happening is -- as said by then senator obama, what is the respon
